Question and Answer:
Why is the OTA not deodexed by default?
I have no idea. It should be. Some "developers" (Three that I know of) dont take the time to deodex a rom, they rather leave it Odexed cause its less time they have to spend on the rom it self. I always recommend deodex over odex cause its a less lazy appoarch and its much faster.
Are there any benefits Odexed Roms offer over Deodexed ROMs?
There is one benefit to odexed roms and thats dalvik management. When you wipe cache on a deodexed rom the first boot takes forever. On a odexed rom this isnt the case. This is the only real benefit odex offers over deodex.
WARNING: I AM NOT RESPONISBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE YOU CAUSE BY FLASHING THIS ROM.
This is very very basic stock rom with minor tweaks. This rom is for starter developers and themers. Or a user who wants to stick with a full touchwiz stock experience.
I can't get this to flash into my phone for the life of me. I am having nothing but problems and I am not new to rooting and flashing. I couldn't get the stock FF18 to download from non-root then I tried to go to a Sprint store and have them to the USB one, that didn't work either so my last resort was to root. I am running EL29 rooted with Clockwork Mod and I can't flash this one nor the official one. I am running out of options any help would be greatly appreciated. PS I tried flashing both from ROM Manager and from Clockwork and no result. It says its a bad file.
